Dear Dr. Apgar,
some weeks ago you were so kind to send me some papers concerning your Apgar Scoring Chart.
In the name of our hospital, Frauenklinik Finkenau, Hamburg, I thank you very much for your effort.
Now we are going to have new forms printed. As we do intend to induce the Apgar Scoring Chart in Hamburg - Germany - I would like to know, if anything was changed during the past year or if you have got new ideas.
Please, let me know soon.
Sincerely yours
Hans Wendl
